A red hat, and a red letter day!
Why is this a red letter day? Because today there is a side view photo that I like enough to make it the first outfit photo you see. That has never happened before. The color of this felt cloche from Fino Fino is actually 'berry' but I'm employing poetic license here.
I was hoping to achieve a casually slouchy look with these wide legged pants and long cardigan. Slouchy can be really difficult for me to pull off. It so easily slips over the line into sloppy territory. And for a woman with, let's call it 'extra padding,' it can often end up just looking lumpy and frumpy. Today I think I've nailed the slouchy effect I was after. I think I look a bit like a character from an Agatha Christie mystery, about to go tooling around the countryside in an open roadster.
